San Miguel Fraser
Celtic + castilian fiddle duo, María San Miguel and Galen Fraser, are multi-instrumentalists and educators who celebrate the values of community and traditional music in their unique chamber music style.
San Miguel Fraser is a project that will always stand for connection, celebrating the joy of music and shared inspiration. The dynamic duo was born as a result of the 2020 quarantine with the “Stay At Home Festival”. Thanks to the beautiful and universal folk community, they raised over $60,000 with the aim of bringing light to the world, maintaining morale and financially helping musicians around the globe. The “Stay At Home Festival” family lives on today with San Miguel Fraser.
“With violins, cittern and voices, the Castilian artist María San Miguel and the composer Galen Fraser, born in California and connected familiarly with Scottish and American folk, go up to the CAT stage for the first time, to present a project which connects them to the traditional music they understand as a social and cultural evolution. 'For us the message is to show how we are, all cultures have traumas that have had to be overcome, it is what we have to accept, there are sad aspects but we must also celebrate it to keep moving forward,' says the artist , a benchmark in the contemporary development of the new tradition of Castile. The two protagonists have an international projection and have performed in various concert halls, music cycles and festivals in Europe and the USA.”
“Fraser's fiddling entwines the robust crunch and skirl of the old world with the airy ostinato and shimmering tremolo of the new.”
